    Making the Switch

    Having used a PC for numerous years at home and at work but getting increasingly frustrated with the viruses and computer freezes despite all necessary precautions, I decided to take the leap and move over to a Mac. Wanting to gain a behind-the-scenes look at what a Mac before purchasing it - more than and different from what I could get at an Apple Store - I found this book to be extremely helpful, as Pogue makes many comparisons between the two systems, thus allowing the reader the luxury of "experiencing" a Mac based on what's known and comfortable on the PC side. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is either contemplating the PC-to-Mac switch or has already decided to make the switch. The book is an invaluable resource.

    Comprehensive and Practical Reference

    While now slightly outdated with the release of Snow Leopard, when I bought the book (several months ago) it was just what I needed to switch from a PC/Windows machine to the Mac with a minimum of fuss or wasted time. I have been using DOS and then Windows since 1983. This book enabled me to switch to the Mac without too much trouble. I especially liked the guide to the transfer of files and data within files to the appropriate place and program on the Mac.

    The description of the Mac environment with Windows equivalents was also very helpful.

    The whole idea of the Missing Manual series by David Pogue is fantastic. I hope the series continues (as I know it has) with a wider field of software and hardware.

    Title reflects exactly the contents of the book

    Well done. Easy to read for a manual. Recommend to anyone purchasing either their first mac or someone who needs a reference manual to which to refer owning their 2nd or 3rd mac.

    Essential For Anyone Switching to a Mac

    I started with a Mac nearly 20 years but switched to PC because that was what was used in business. Now that I retired, I purchased a MacBook Prof and love it. Switching to the Mac has made the transition much easier. The book is comprehensive and written in easily understandable prose. It is a reference I will be using for a long time. I would recommend it to anyone switching to the Mac.

    A must have for Mac "Virgins"

    A great reference tool for anyone making the move from PC to a Mac. I had little experience with a Mac before getting my MacBook, but was tired of my PC. It was the best move I could have made, and this book just made it all that much easier when I had questions.

    Great Book for former PC Users

    I knew very little about using a Mac. I found this book easy to follow and very helpful if you are considering changing from a PC to a MAC. I was also impressed with the Mac features and glad not to deal with the aggravations one has to deal with using a PC.
